Hi Fabrice, first of all, congratulations for your work, it's good to know that someone works hard for heroes.

I think the most important question to ask is if these screenshots are made during the gameplay or not, and if it's yes, tell us how do you implement the camera for allowing a global view of the scenario, answering us how the player moves the hero through the field(I hope not in first person, like the screenshots seems to be).

The number of towns or number of total creatures, or the combat.. are not important by now, the most important is the gameplay. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

To this point most people want to know how many towns and which towns is in the game? I think that will be the final question, and therefore I'll just ask another thing instead:

"bla bla...the sequel to the universally acclaimed turn-based strategy series with a touch of RPG... bla bla"

Well you see I'm a fan of rpg games, and I would like to know what those RPG elements exactly are? is it something new, or just the regular hero development? Is there a new skill system? (Which I think should be more like diablo 2, where as the skills are more invidual to just that "hero theme")

Well many questions, but the real question is: What exactly is the RPG elements that will be in the game?

I think there are 2 kind of posters:

1) the ones who only wanted to know 'how many...' like the towns, creatures, magic...
2) the others who are worried about how the 3D's afect to gameplay, rpg, strategy...UNIT STACKS.

people number 1 will buy the game, yes or yes, people number 2......it depends....

remember fabrice: look at age empires III or civilization IV, the exit of a new game is: 1/3 keeping the fun elements, 1/3 improving the others that already exists, 1/3 new. (for HOMM5 I assume that the 3D is the 1/3 new).

Someone at nival, says that picture 3 is the combat screen....good, but, BUT, where're the numbers of the stack???

First off, no offense jOjO-IJB but except for the polish comunity, no one gives a rat's *** if there will be a polish version... Don't you people speak english? I'm romanian for God's sake and speak it well enough. Heck if u want a polish version that bad have the polish comunity release a minimod that translates the text into polish. Right now the Devs must make the game in order to have something to translate geez...
Second, as curious as I am about the number and type of towns see my opinion (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums?a=tpc&s=400102&f=1851065692&m=2101025103)

There should only be one (slightly personal) important question:

Are there vampires as a recruitable unit?

Subquestion would be:

If they do, do they have the 'blaah' sound effect as in Heroes II. If they do not they should be scrapped.

Serious question (in the case I'm the only one with my previous question):

What is the heroes' role in the game (combat and adventure wise)

Question - what are the system requirements for HoMM5 (at least, approximate system requirements)?

Opinion - full 3Dd graphics is BAD for HoMM series. I was shocked and really disappointed, when I saw those new screenshots.

Pokemons and robots-transformers instead of fantasy creatures we all know - that's how the monsters lookhttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif Furthermore, when I think of the system and the video card I'll need for this game, I get sad even more. There are so many small objects on HMM map, and if me make ALL of them 3d - it means that the fans will need to buy expensive superpowerful videocards in order to enjoy this graphics...

Second opinion - HoMM never was a game for little children. It's a complex strategic game, interesting mostly to elder teen-age and adult fans. I hope, that HoMM 5 will NOT be a cartoonish game for kids it currently looks like. Kids have enough games to playhttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif))

RMS
03-31-2005, 11:22 AM
Why is knowing what the towns are so important?

I personally don't see that as a primary factor in determining whether or not the game will be "good" or anything of that sort.

Instead, I had two different [sets of] questions.

How customizeable will the heroes/creatures be, and how interactive will the battle environment be?

Either one is fine.

What I mean is, will heroes gain special character classes and learn special techniques, and will individual units be able gain levels and use items like potions?

Will a castle have different levels of fortification (more walls) or hot oil that any units can operate, and will elven archers be able to move into a forested section of the battle map and gain improved defense?

Stuff like that.

MysticPhoenixDW
03-31-2005, 11:34 AM
My question goes in the same direction as those of many others. But I think more important than how many tonws there will be is the question how many creatures there will be.

For example I prefer 5 towns with 8 creatures each to 9 towns with 4 creatures each.

However, RMS' questions are more interesting the longer I think about them.

=> I HOPE that each color will play at its turn (regardless if it's an human or an AI)

au contraire, mon ami. HOMM1 through HOMM4 all were ported to the Mac. They would have stopped if they weren't making money.

You also have to think about two things: (1) 3-5% of the computer world is still millions of users; (2) demographically speaking, Mac users tend to more reflect the population that is interested in strategic gaming: unix geeks, better educated people, and home users.

Hi Fabrice. First off, let me say thank you for taking the time out of what I'm sure is a very hectic schedule to appease the mob, as it were. Second, seeing as how you're in the mood to tease us with the answer to ONE question....

There are just too many questions right now to narrow it down to one. So I'll list a few, and if it ends up on your list...so be it. If not...I'm sure we'll get them answered eventually. I'm patient.

1. Is there troop-stacking in H5?
2. If that screenshot is indeed a combat screen, and there is no numbers for troop-stacking...is it simply a mock-up screenshot?
3. Is there a hot-seat mode planned for H5?
4. Is there a map-editor planned for H5?
5. Are there any former NWC-team members working on the project (besides Guthwulf) and in what capacity?

That'll do for me for now. As for the # of towns and town types....any answer you give now is sure to change or be too vague to be of any real help to us thirsty-for-knowledge-fanatics. :O) Thanks again for your time.

But considering the look of the rest of the game....I'm not sure how a lot of the artwork that NWC designed will fit in with Ubi's. As for me, the artwork isn't my concern. It's the playability, the addictiveness. Ubisoft has also taken many of the ideas that NWC had developed for H5 and run with them. So don't worry too much. There will still be quite a bit of NWC-spirit in there for you. But the artwork....Ubi/nival has thier own artistic style. It's different, but after a bit I'm sure you'll get used to it.

<---currently using the screenshots as desktops and screensavers to do that very thing. :O)

Hi fabrice http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

My question is, why are the site and forums hosted by such an unstable and slow server?


hm, I know, unpopular, but it DOES reflect much on the company and the effort!
Anyone remember the master of orion 3 site/forums? .. kohan2 has an ugly page too, and fittingly it's not a very good game..

I don't think it's even a matter of economics, just a matter of how tasteful and professional the designers are. hm.

Which towns will be in the game?

Second alternative: if fabrice doesnt want to answer which, then how many towns and creatures?

come on people, half of the questions you asked, even i can answer (creature stacking; hotseat), and some are so general that u wont know anything even if you got the answer. (will the music be good, how interactive the landscape, how custimiziable the heroes etc)

Heroes 4 had "less everything" and it was tottaly unbalanced! and H3?? A lot of everything, 8 towns, and the game was perfectly balanced.
So it doesn't matter "how many everything" there will be in the game!

My question, although I know the overwhelming majority will ask for town/creature types -- but Im more interested in the Beta...which is when can one register for the Beta tests, I would love to be involved.

If it can only be about the game, my question would be: How are you changing the game so that strategy plays more of a role?

Oh, lighten up.

1. There's a big chance that the one answer you linked to is nothing more than a april fool's joke, and that we have a real answer due.
2. Even if that answer is "the one", it can't be bad to ask more questions. How could it be bad for the devs to keep track of what the fans want to know?

If the questions bother you that much, memorize the name of this thread and then stop reading it. There's no need to flame people for being excited about the game and wanting to find out more fact about it.

LOL, that wasn't me trying to flame anyone. This is the way I see it: the answer was an april fools joke, but it's all we're going to get. They don't owe us anything. It would be great if we would get an actual answer, but you have to admit there's not a very big chance of that happening. I'd like to apologize if I offended anyone by "shouting" but I just wanted it to attract attention. There's no need to bring this thread back to the top time and time again if it serves no purpose.
